Not everything has to be some kind of profound wisdom. Sometimes you just gotta relax and laugh about life! These 21 phrases do exactly that and show the humorous side of life that gets a little dark sometimes.

The Self-Intimacy Practice That Changed My Life By Salona Carlisle

Today, I’m going to talk about the potency of desire, where it lives, and how to harness it. In Tantra, we talk a lot about desire and leading with our body’s desires. According to Tantra, the soul communicates to you through the language of your desires. In the world of neuroscience, quantum physics, and the law of attraction, the precept is:

If we were a resonant match, we would already have our desires.

In other words, if you don’t already have what you desire, all these means is that you’re not yet THAT woman who is embodying the frequency that is pulsing at the very core of your desire.

The journey of personal growth is the journey of peeling away the layers of limitation and disempowered ways of being, while simultaneously beginning to trust that bigger part of you that is beckoning you from the place of already having all that you want. Traversing that space between where you are and where you are going in a way that effectively integrates the lessons you’re here to learn and allows for the expansion that is required can sometimes feel discouraging at times, especially when you’re trying to do it all alone.

So, I want to offer a couple of ways to begin exploring this for yourself. One of the most powerful places to start is by befriending your desires once again and becoming more embodied….specifically sexually embodied.

Why?

Because a lot of women are existing in the place of numbness, disconnection, and disembodiment. Through our culture and our families, we’ve been taught to not feel, to not emote, and to not desire. As a result, we learn that our sensual being is wrong, that our sexual essence is not safe, and that our desires are inappropriate, selfish, or out of reach. We’re taught to live mostly from our upper chakras – from our intellect and our heart – while our sexuality is very shamed.

And, yet, the sacral chakra is the home of your creative impulse and your ability to nurture and give birth to the seeds of life. It’s directed by the principle of pleasure, enjoyment, and well-being. It is the sacred, powerful place from which to manifest your dreams and desires.

When out of balance, some of the possible symptoms could be feeling numbed out, being out of touch with yourself, the inability to access of how you feel, feeling stuck or experiencing a lack of desire or satisfaction.

If you can relate to any of this, here’s what I want you to know…

The feminine animal body just knows what she needs and desires and is constantly in tune with that.

The more we’re down IN our bodies and in touch with our sexuality, the more we have access to our embodied wisdom, our intuition, and our desire energy….and, of course, our sovereignty, power, and pleasure. Whether we’re consciously aware of it or not, in any given moment, our sexual energy is simply pure creative life force pregnant with potential. It’s that ever-pulsating, expansive energy that vibrates at the frequency of infinite possibility.

So, the first step is to simply re-sensitize ourselves and our bodies to learn how to feel, how to be present, and how to open to and trust desire again. As we begin to feel our sensual sexual energy once again – the very source of our aliveness and desire – and do it in a way that’s safe and honoring for OUR unique, individual nervous system, we’re exercising that muscle, not only of pleasure but of continual expansion into the frequency of possibility.

Here’s one of my favorite self-intimacy practices to start with: Simply Make Time To FEEL.

Ground into your first and second chakra as well as your perineum. Set a timer for 5 minutes and just BE with yourself and FEEL whatever it is you’re feeling. From there, the next bonus step could be to simply listen for and be present with your desires.

If this is something you struggle with, that’s totally ok. Just know that you’re waking up an atrophied muscle. Nothing has gone wrong and you’re not broken!!! There’s no better time to prioritize this work than from exactly where you are today.

Every moment is perfect. And, the more you surrender to that, then the next thing can come. 

How To Use The Law Of Attraction To Bring You Wealth And Happiness By Rachael Aprill Phillips

Whether you believe there are cosmic energies that can bring you wealth and happiness, or you think that’s just a bunch of baloney, the principles that the Law of Attraction are based on can help you get through many ups and downs that come along with life. The Law of Attraction is basically a theory that claims that whatever you think about on a regular basis becomes attracted to you like a magnet. For example, if you consistently have a negative attitude, bad things will continue to happen to you.

How the Law of Attraction can work for you

The more bad things happen to you, the more negative your attitude generally becomes. The opposite is also true. People who always seem to have a positive outlook attract good things into their lives. Because their lives are filled with good things, their attitude stays positive and better things continue to enter their lives. If you only look at the Law of Attraction simply from a logical standpoint, it still makes sense. If you’re the eternal skeptic, and you have trouble believing in things like karma and attracting things with the mind, you might need to look at the Law of Attraction with logic.

How to let the Law Of Attraction work for you

Fear can be crippling. It can cause people to worry that their efforts will never be rewarded. When people let that kind of negativity into their lives, they can actually cause themselves to have more problems. Think about salespeople, for example. A salesperson needs to be positive and upbeat. They need to be able to make the people they’re trying to sell to comfortable. If the salesperson is feeling negative, it will show in their attitude.

If they don’t exude confidence and happiness, the customer will see it. The more people who refuse to buy from the salesperson, the more their attitude will falter, which will bring them even fewer sales. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. On the other hand, a salesperson with a very positive attitude will inspire more confidence in their potential customers. Their upbeat attitude and positive demeanor will make customers like them and trust them more.

Because of their likeability and general positive outlook, they’ll probably get many more sales than their negative counterparts – many from word of mouth via satisfied customers. As they make more sales, their confidence grows even more, and the cycle continues in a very positive way.

The simple steps to the Law Of Attraction

If you want to experience positive effects like this in your own life, then you have to adjust your thinking. It can be very difficult to switch from a negative outlook to a positive one, so you’ll probably have to practice a lot. You need to put notes all around you that remind you of the positive things you should be thinking. And don’t think in terms of what you want to happen. Think of them as having already happened.

Every day, you should practice imagining what your life will be like once you’ve achieved all of the things you want. If you want to become wealthy, spend time each day thinking of what your life will be like once you’re rich.

Think of yourself living in the home of your dreams, waking up in bed with the partner you’ve always dreamed of, getting into the car you salivate over and flying to your favorite place in the world – and use your senses to experience your visualized state of perfection. In order to achieve great things, you have to think great thoughts. Whether you believe it’s through cosmic force or simply attitude, you can get what you want just by thinking the right thoughts.

9 Ways To Balance And Heal Your Sacral Chakra By Stacey Herrera

Nine Steps to Physical Health and Enhanced Creativity

A healthy, balanced sacral chakra invites feelings of ease, pleasure, creativity, and flow. It allows you to enjoy life, people, and circumstances without becoming dependent or overly attached. When your sacral chakra is balanced, you can create and maintain healthy boundaries in relationships. You will feel open and friendly. Tolerant and patient. Compassionate and kind. You can feel your emotions without being overwhelmed. And you can experience true intimacy with yourself and others.

A balanced sacral chakra also allows you to enjoy physical health in your kidneys, bladder, lower back, and other organs. And as an added perk, when the sacral chakra is balanced, you not only have more sex, but you WANT to!

Your creativity surges when your sacral chakra is balanced and functioning at optimal levels. You will experience greater artistic expression and physical endurance. While there are a variety of ways to balance and heal your sacral chakra, here are nine of my favorites.

1. Meditation

Meditation is like prednisone for the spirit. It has the power to reduce inflammation of all kind, physical, energetic, and spiritual. Meditation is great for balancing and healing the sacral chakra and all the other chakras too.

2. Crystals

Orange citrine, carnelian, amber, moonstone, and tiger’s eye—all resonate with the sacral chakra. These crystals may also benefit other chakras as well.

3. Foods

One of the best things about the foods associated with the sacral chakra is that they are all delicious and pretty erotic! These include orange, fleshy fruits like oranges, papaya, peaches, and mangos and vegetables such as pumpkins and other winter squashes, carrots, and sweet potatoes. These foods are very fragrant and taste delicious!

4. Water

Water is the element of the sacral chakra. Be near it. Take walks near a lake, pond, or the ocean. Sit near fountains. Be in it. Take baths and showers. Go swimming. Dip your feet in. Perform mindful handwashing. And do not forget to drink plenty of it.

5. Movement

One of my favorite ways to move is through dance, because dance is about movement and flow (which is great for the sacral chakra), and it is also a really fun way to exercise! It does not have to be hard or complicated. It can be as little as two songs a day. And it doesn’t matter if you can dance or not, just allow your body to move any way it feels called. Think fluid and sway. There are also several yoga poses that are great for the sacral chakra, particularly hip openers.

6. Massages

The act of allowing someone else to assist you in moving energy through your body is powerful. Physical connection generates the feel-good hormone oxytocin, which is wonderful for your mood and your overall outlook.

7. Wear It

Color therapy can be very healing. Wear orange to lift your spirits and shift your mood. Another great perk that comes with wearing orange is it will lighten the mood of the people around you, too!

8. Smell It

Orange and citrus scents are great mood lifters. And since the sacral chakra is all about the feels, orange and citrus scents are perfect! There are also other essential oils and flower essences that are great for the sacral chakra.

9. Self-Love

The last and most important way to heal and balance your sacral chakra is to take care of you. That means taking the time to love all up on yourself! Be mindful. Moisturize. Touch yourself. Massage your hands and feet daily, which is a double-duty activity, because there are so many acupressure points on the hands and feet.  Tell yourself that you love you every single day, because loving yourself allows you to share your love with others.

5 THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT MEXICO’S INDEPENDENCE DAY

5 THINGS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT MEXICO’S INDEPENDENCE DAY

In the early nineteenth century, Mexico, with a little influence from the US and France, began talking about a revolt against Spain. Father Miguel Hidalgo from Dolores, Mexico, was a leader of one of the rallying groups. Hidalgo and his officers were planning a revolt for late fall of 1810. The Spanish people found out about the revolt which led the Spanish Government to order the arrest of Hidalgo and his officers. When Hidalgo found out, he called a meeting at his church. He rang the church bell on the night of September 15, 1810, to call his congregation to mass. Here Father Hidalgo rallied the people to fight. He gave the speech which is now known as ‘Grito de Delores’, saying “Viva Mexico” and “Viva la independencia!” These famous words have been remembered and are said each year at the Independence Day celebrations.

INDEPENDENCE DAY IS SEPTEMBER 16, NOT MAY 5

In countries outside of Mexico, the holiday Cinco De Mayo is very popular and has gotten labeled as Mexican Independence Day, however, this is incorrect. The fifth of May actually marks the Mexican victory over France in the Battle of Puebla. September 16th is the day Mexico claimed its independence and began the war against Spain, also known as Mexican Independence Day.

INDEPENDENCE DAY IS A TWO-DAY CELEBRATION.

Mexicans participate in “El Grito de Dolores” every September 15 at 11 PM, and the following day they have celebrations much like the 4th of July in the United States with parades, food, and family parties. On the 16th of September schools, most workplaces, and federal buildings are closed.

THE LEADER OF THE MEXICAN WAR OF INDEPENDENCE WAS ALSO A PRIEST.

Father Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, also known as simply, Miguel Hidalgo, was the “Father of the Nation” and rallied his people during mass on the evening of September 15, 1810, in Dolores, Guanajuato, Mexico. His proclamation that night that all people should band together and fight against the Spanish government became known as the infamous “El Grito” or Cry of Independence.

EACH YEAR EL GRITO IS REENACTED BY THE CURRENT MEXICAN PRESIDENT

He rings the bell of the National Palace in Mexico City then recites a cry of patriotism, ending with ¡Viva Mexico!, a phrase that Mexicans commonly use to express their love of country. Additionally, other reenactments occur all over the country by officials of towns and cities. They even perform the EL Grito in Puerto Vallarta, recited by the mayor each year.

PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD CELEBRATE MEXICAN INDEPENDENCE DAY, NOT JUST PEOPLE IN MEXICO.

Being one of the most important holidays in Mexico, anyone with Mexican roots decorates their house with the flag colors of red, green, and white at this time of the year. Cities with large Mexican populations such as Houston, Texas, and Los Angeles, California have their own Mexican Independence day parades and celebrations where “paisanos”, or fellow countrymen, can join each other in celebration of their country.

10 Life Hacks For Weight Loss By Amelia Grant

No matter how much you love your body, the extra folds on your stomach and thighs can be an unpleasant detail that you want to get rid of as quickly as possible. Extreme diets are not the best solutions for your physical and mental health, but you can create your own program that will help you quickly lose weight.

Life hacks for weight loss

1. Don’t skip breakfast

Morning is the most restless part of the day. But the main task that you need to accomplish is to have a good breakfast. Just 300-400 calories for breakfast can speed up your metabolism, usually slowing down after sleep. Choose a high-fiber cereal with no sugar, but with milk – to quickly start the digestive system and gain strength for the whole day.

2. Prefer protein

To constantly feel full, you should increase the protein content in your diet. This encourages the body to secrete a pancreatic polypeptide that is responsible for feeling satiety in the body. In addition, protein allows you to speed up the metabolism, which means that fat will be burned faster. Add eggs, dairy products, fish and beans to your breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, and this will significantly increase your chances for weight loss.

3. Eat more fiber

Foods rich in fiber will help you maintain a feeling of fullness longer. They can also reduce the number of calories your body needs, and this generally reduces the total fat content in the body. Just 10 grams is enough to see a result. You can focus on the content of the food indicated on the package in order to calculate how much food you should consume each day.

4. Give up sugar

Most sugary foods contain trans fats that only increase hunger. The less you will consume them, the longer you will feel full. If it’s too hard for you to give up sugar, use synthetic sweeteners, erythritol, or add more fruit.

5. Change sunflower oil to coconut

Do not give up any fried foods if you like crispy meals. But if you want to speed up the metabolism, it makes sense to change sunflower oil for frying to coconut oil. It does not accumulate on the body and has significant benefits for your overall vigor.

6. Avoid stress

The more nervous you are, the more cortisol your body produces. It increases your appetite, which means you will consume much more than usual. Add walks to your schedule, learn some asanas, or try to record all your fears in a diary — even these small actions can be a great way to prevent cortisol levels from rising.

7. Drink green tea

Another important factor to speed up metabolism is drinking green tea. If you drink it at least three times a day, it can speed up your metabolism by 4%. That’s at least 60 calories per day. To do this, you don’t need to train or give up pleasant things – simply use this method as a new habit.

8. Refuse refined carbohydrates

Remember that not all carbohydrates are equally harmful to your body. It’s enough to reduce the amount of pasta, white rice and bread in order to see the effect after a couple of weeks. Replace them with wholegrain, legumes, and vegetables.

9. Control iron levels

The lower the iron content in your body, the less oxygen enters the cells, and therefore the metabolism is slower. To make it easier for the body to burn fat, you need to consume at least 18 milligrams of iron per day – usually, this means eating some iron-rich foods daily. This list includes nuts and poultry, so it’s not that difficult to achieve the desired indicators.

10. Get enough sleep

If you constantly don’t get enough sleep, then there’s a high probability you will gain weight. To start losing weight, you need to sleep at least 7 hours a day. Think about how you can rebuild your schedule. Give up evening TV shows and do try not to postpone awakening. Hitting the snooze button can make you even more tired!

How Many Hours of Sleep You Need Based on Your Zodiac Sign by ISADORA BAUM

Pisces

Pisces rules the world of imagination and dreams, so if they don’t have enough time to sleep, they may become too imaginative and dreamy in their daily lives, letting their subconscious take over, MacGuire said. And “without enough dream time, they are prone to want to escape in other ways,” he cautioned, so be wary of how you might behave if you don’t give your body the rest and space it needs during the night.

Amount: 9 hours

Getting Into The Groove Of The Attitude Of Gratitude By Shayna Vigliotta

The attitude of gratitude is a mentality that honors your soul and power.

The attitude of gratitude is a mentality that honors your soul and power. By focusing on the positive things in our lives, the people we are close to, and the experiences we have, we are able to recognize the good in our lives. Good energy attracts good things.

Not only does this routine acknowledge the many things you may take for granted every day but it also creates a positive mindset to start your day. Chances are if you wake up happy you will remain happy for the rest of the day. People who have this attitude of gratitude tend to live happier and more positive lives. There are many things to be grateful for, even when you feel like there isn’t.

The attitude of gratitude

When you are maintaining an attitude of gratitude, you give thanks for your current circumstance. It’s the way you see it, however, that has the power to change things. Instead of stressing over an untidy room, try to be thankful for the abundance of items. You may not like your job but you can focus on the positive and be appreciative for the opportunity and stability.

It’s all about your perspective. Your perspective is very important because it controls everything. The way you look at things is based on your perspective. In other terms, it will make your life easier if you focus on the bright side of things. What we choose to see reflects on our outlook.

When you express your gratitude, you are acknowledging your higher power. Whoever you are addressing as your higher power, make sure you give your thanks. Acknowledging your blessings grant you with more blessings. Life does happen so some of the unfavorable things may not stop happening. But by keeping the attitude of gratitude, you can turn your life around and have things work in your favor.

Once maintaining this mentality becomes a habit of yours, you will begin to notice your mind starting to explore the possibilities this attitude has to offer. Once you get the hang of expressing gratitude on a daily basis, you will see how magical it can be. That magic is cast upon you if only you supply the energy to excite it. You won’t begin to experience this magic until you focus on what can be rather than what can’t.

It may sound like a bunch of hocus pocus but watch as the Universe will show you what it’s really capable of and what you are really capable of. Magic!

Try this

Think of 5 things you are thankful for every morning before you get out of bed and 5 things you are thankful for before you go to sleep. You can say them out loud, in your head, or even write them down. This may seem a little extreme at first but sparing 1 minute of your day won’t kill you. In fact, it will make your day better. I have found using a journal to be the most efficient in developing this habit.

Writing about the things you are thankful for before getting out of bed allows you to begin each day on a positive note. After a few mornings of writing in your journal, you will soon realize how fortunate you are to wake up every morning and be able to express the awesome things you have or got going for you.

Writing before bed helps you realize how fortunate you were to experience the day you had. Making the positive list before bed will aid you into better sleep. Then, in the morning, you can express your gratitude and repeat this cycle all over again. It will become a routine before you know it.

Good luck, express graciousness and be good.

From this book, I learned about the impairment in academic performance when you have ADHD.

The fact that there is nothing harder for a person with ADHD to be successful in school. For me, I  was just wanted to get work over with, going through life as quickly as possible.

School administered test for reading comprehension, I always scored lower than “average”, I also had some delays in academic abilities, that no one really knew about, since I didn’t point them out. I was too ashamed.

I’ve also struggled with high levels of inattention and impulsive behavior, which have had adverse consequences in many areas of my life.

Fidgety, on the go and restless. Constantly moving, shifting my position, wiggling, antsy are only some of the other characteristics/symptoms I have. I also have a habit/ to have a folded piece of paper a “post it” to massage/soothe me by rubbing between my nail bed and nails, this feels calming to me.

I am in awe, as I research and find more information about a genetic disorder that until recently was doubted by many, misunderstood and under diagnosed, especially in girls. It was thought to only affect boys.

Some insights are hard to swallow, I feel saddened for the little girl I was and the woman I am. I wish I had had the tools, medications and knowledge much earlier so that I could have avoided some pitfalls. I guess as they say “Better later than never!”

Thankful, Grateful & Blessed! 

7 Ways To Develop Your Psychic Abilities By Mudassar Hussain

It’s a commonly held belief that we’re all naturally imbued with a certain level of psychic ability. This suggests that we all have the potential to fortify these spiritual tendencies. But it can be frustrating to believe this if you don’t have any idea of what to do about it. Here are some ideas of ways in which you could strengthen and grow your natural gift. By using some of these techniques, you can move closer towards achieving your psychic goals.

Most of us have psychic abilities to a certain degree. The problem is many people simply ignore their intuition, letting their psychic potential go to waste. While natural clairvoyants may need little more than meditation to keep their abilities strong, others require practice to fine-tune their skills. Nevertheless, over time psychic abilities can be developed and even perfected. Here are seven ways to unlock your psychic potential.

Meditate every day

Meditation is a powerful tool for developing your psychic ability. Why? Because meditating raises your energetic vibration. And simply put, spirit energy vibrates at a higher frequency. Too often we rush through the day with a scattered brain that leaves us anxiety-ridden and stressed. Through meditation, you’ll begin to feel more connected to your higher self, your spirit guides and the energy of others. Just 10 to 15 minutes of meditation a day can help you become more spiritually-tuned.

Trust your intuition

How many times have you been plagued by the question, “What should I do?” And how many times have you disregarded that instinctive gut feeling, opting instead for conscious reasoning? The problem is, with conscious reasoning often comes ego-based decision making. And when the ego takes over, instinct falls to the wayside. For example, while instinct may guide you to forgive someone, your ego may guide you towards revenge.

Your intuition tells you important things that your own mind will argue with. Spiritually, intuition might be described as a sixth sense, innate wisdom, inner sense, inner voice or spiritual guide. Yet, for those not spiritually attuned, trusting intuition seems more like magic. And maybe it is a form of natural magic that humans can tap into. To access your intuition, switch off your inner critic. Stop rationalizing everything and just listen – without judgment.

Stop fearing the unknown

Being psychic can be a little frightening, particularly if you question where the answers you receive come from. But those who have a natural psychic ability trust first and foremost that their “knowing” comes from a place deep within themselves. Psychic ability isn’t guided by some unseen force; it’s guided by intuition, confidence in self and the ability to feel another’s emotions, or rather, get into someone’s head. When you’re guided by fear you can’t really get in touch with your spiritual side. So, instead of fearing the unknown, embrace your psychic ability and treat it like a gift.

Get to know your spirit guides

Psychic abilities aren't just for a few special individuals. Anybody can explore and develop them!

Spirit guides gently guide you throughout life intuitively, helping you stay on track with your soul’s purpose. They’ll hook you up with people, resources, money or even articles like this — wink — that will help you reach your goals. The catch is, they really can’t help us unless we ask them first. Our spirit guides are always at the ready to connect with us, but first, we need to tune into their frequency by dedicating time during meditation.

Simply ask your guides for a sign. Don’t justify what transpires, just go with it. When I asked my spirit guides for a sign, soon after, I found a feather lying outside my door. Create a sacred space to connect with your spirit guides daily. And when you have a question or need some help with a project, just ask. But, be clear on what you would like them to guide you with, and then trust that they’ll get the job done.

Try psychometry

Practice feeling the energy of objects to develop your psychic’s abilities. Psychometry is the ability to “read” the energy or history of an object simply by touching it. It’s a great way to develop your psychic abilities. Here’s how you can practice psychometry. Deciphering energies contained within an object is an early stepping stone in your psychic journey. It’s a fairly simple idea, but honing in on your abilities in this area can be tricky at first.

Psychometry is all about sensing the vibrations emanating from an object. To develop this skill, start by taking an object with an abundance of emotional meaning (it’s easiest with metal objects), holding it, closing your eyes and panning for psychic information. This can be a very rewarding psychic method, especially if you take it one step further and go on a spiritual adventure by visiting a historical site or antique shop. Immersing yourself in such a psychically rich environment can be demanding or difficult, but it also has the potential to engage your abilities in a way that will ultimately strengthen them.

This is a great starting point, as can diversify what you take from an object or a space in line with your aims for psychic development; you could try for visions, sounds, memories, emotions, names; the possibilities are endless.

  1. Choose a quiet area in your home, free from distractions. Sit in a relaxed position and close your eyes.
  2. Rest your hands on your lap with your palms facing up. With your eyes closed, ask someone to silently place an object in your hands. The object should be unknown to you and something the person has had in his possession for a long time.
  3. Allow images and feelings to come into your mind, and then say whatever you see, hear, feel or sense while you hold the object.
  4. Don’t judge. The impressions may seem strange and even meaningless to you, but they might be of significance to the owner of the object.
  5. The more you practice, the better you’ll get.

Make predictions

To expand your psychic abilities, you must begin making predictions.

Here’s another easy way to develop your psychic abilities. Close your eyes and breathe in deeply. Make sure you’re comfortable and your feet are firmly planted on the floor. After a few deep breaths, think about the next day. In your mind imagine yourself there. Now, write three predictions down on paper for that day. Check back the next day for accuracy.

Read other people’s thoughts

You can strengthen your telepathy skills by attempting to read other’s thoughts. You can also communicate your thoughts to others — silently. Begin by simply guessing what your friends or family are thinking whenever possible. Additionally, ask a friend to draw pictures or select random playing cards. Then, try to figure out what your friend has drawn, or which card they have chosen. Keep practicing daily. Telepathy takes concentration and may take years to develop. But with time and practice, you will become more accurate.

Practice, practice, practice!

For this practice, all you need is a photograph and your mind. Sit down with an image and focus. Relate to those depicted, relate to the photographer, consider the time and place. Mine all the information you can; senses, context, stories. The ephemeral qualities of photographs, their nature as frozen time, as senses captured, render them a source saturated with psychic potential. By harnessing the photograph and its unique characteristics, you can grow your proficiency operating in the psychic realm.

Miracles don’t happen overnight. Unlocking your psychic ability will happen, but you may need to practice daily to get there. If you’re experiencing little to no success then go back to the beginning and follow the advice given. Believe in yourself and be grateful for everything you achieved. Before you know it, your vibration will shift and you will be more psychic.
